Peter Obi declares for 2023 presidential contest

Politics

Anambra state’s former governor, Peter Obi, declared his intention to contest in the next year’s presidential election.

Obi made this disclosure when he held a meeting with traditional rulers in Anambra state.

He was the vice-presidential candidate of the PDP in the 2019 Nigerian general elections, running with former Vice President Atiku Abubakar.

You will recall that Obi attended the official declaration of Atiku Abubakar yesterday in Abuja.

Speaking with Channels Television at the ceremony, Obi said, “This is a new politics. I play politics differently. For me, politics is not a war. It’s a relationship.

“Atiku is my leader, my boss, and a senior brother. If he invites me for anything I will attend.

“Aspiring (for the presidency), does not say I should not keep my relationships very cordial.

“I’m aspiring. Remember, I always say it, Atiku is a unifier. He believes in Nigeria. He’s a good man. And anytime he invites me for anything, I will be there.”

Obi will face Atiku in the primary of the PDP alongside other contenders for the ticket of the party.
